Angelina Jolie has had a double mastectomy because she carries the BRCA1 gene and has a high risk of developing cancer.

I think it was very brave of her to make this proactive decision and share it with the world.

I was actually shocked to hear this the other day.  It was earlier this year that both she and BP had mentioned another bio-child was not out of the cards and she is a huge bf'ing advocate. Brave girl, especially going public with it!
